Hi Guys. Here's a pic of my 1946 1.5-ton flat bed I just purchased. The guy I bought it from has had it in the shed for the last 30 years. Had bought it for his daughter to drive to school in the 70's. Told me it originally haulled coffins.
He would drive it once in a while but for some time just around his estate (no brakes). The ID # is 21PJ-L 1829 so it would have been built in Janesville Wi in December of '46. To the best that I find the original color would have been Apple Green which is funny because I bought the truck to fix-up to take my apples to the farmers market in the fall.
I will do a ground-up restoration in a few years. But for now, it runs good so I'll fix the brakes and check every thing and make a new woodbed for her.
Will let you know when I do the restoation and send pics. Will keep all stock but the color. (I want apple red not green.)
